Drawings for a Novel


NORTHEAST (7x9 inches, 168 pp, 2014) is an illustrated novel that marries prose with imagery to deepen the portrait of its main character. In lieu of painted canvas, intermittent black and white drawings counterpoint narrative story-telling, building upon Gertrude Stein’s association of the novel with a visual medium. The following are the original drawings on paper made especially for the project.
